    Can we only see the 1/8 scale train Carolwood Pacific Railroad Room if we stay at Wilderness Lodge? THX!

    Hi Judy!

    I just love this question!  Disney history is one of my favorite subjects and it really sounds like you have done some research to find one of the beloved history gems at  the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Walt Disney had a fascination with trains leading him to build the Carlwood Pacific Railroad (a 1/8 scale model) in the backyard of his California home, in 1950.  Part of this train is on display in the lobby of the Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, along with other items pertaining to Walt's love for locomotives.  You don't need to be a guest to visit the Carlwood Pacific Railroad Room; anyone is welcome to view this wonderful piece of Disney history.  

    Some of my other favorite places to take in a bit of "Disney Past" are all of the windows on Main Street, U.S.A, seeing Walt's plane at Hollywood Studios and taking the Marceline to Magic Kingdom Tour. 

    There are so many wonderful places to learn about Walt Disney and the process of bringing his dream to life.  I love Disney history and hope you have a wonderful time soaking in a bit of the magic. If there is anything else I may assist you with, please let me know.  Have an enchanting vacation.

    Pixie Dusted Wishes,
